Post Hurricane Florence Update
The Council has sustained some damage to our facility due to Hurricane Florence. Because of this our reopen date continues to be up in the air at present. We are diligently working to open the Council, but there are many circumstances which will take time to navigate. We are in need of windows, new floors, ceilings, new lighting, and an audio system for the building. As we approach a resolution to the repairs and are able to safely resume regular working hours, the Council will update everyone via our email newsletter, our website, and our social media profiles. We have also posted an update for our Subgrant Applicants here. As always, you all have our thanks for your continued patience and understanding.
